This documentary looks awesome. I love watching things like this – always pumps me up and motivates me. Forks Over Knives… “The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.”
One of the things that I haven’t been able to pay much attention to is making meals right now. And, as a breastfeeding mama, I need those extra calories. So, I’m keeping things on hand for easy eating and snacking like protein bars, avocados, nut butters, fresh veggies that are cut and ready to dip into hummus, and I’m a superfood smoothie making mama! My smoothies these past couple of days have been loaded with things like: fresh (or frozen) berries, frozen banana, nut milk, probiotics, brown rice powder, hemp powder, hemp seeds, flax meal, chia meal, goji berries, greens, prunes, etc. They vary each time but they’re definitely filled with calories and nutrients! My goal is keeping my protein around 55-65 grams so the protein powders are helping in that department. Sooo…. Yay for smoothies! Here is a recent post I wrote 3 Problems Smoothies Solve!
What are some of your favorite EASY snacks?
I will be continuing Kamea’s updates over on my Green Mommy Blog… so come on over and see what we’re up to. :)
Her name is Kamea (pronuounced ka MAY uh) which is polynesian for “sweet darling.” As you can imagine… my hands are so full right now so I’m not updating very often. ;)
Lol that last smoothie post was scheduled in advance a couple days.
I HAVE A BABY GIRL!!!!! Birth story coming soon.
My waters seem to be leaking consistently, a little bit at a time, but no gushes.
My surges are pretty consistent, but not super close, and feel fine.
Midwife says I appear to be in “early-early labor, to stop counting, and get some rest.”
